Given tonight I'm sitting at home watching movies ( so far I've watched The Princess Bride and X-Men: The Last Stand) I'd say my traditional new years eve celebrations are no more lol.
I realised today, it's the first time in 23 years I've not gone out drinking on NYE and tomorrow I will wake up totally sober and without smoking for the first time in 22 years. I guess as you get older, you come up with new traditions. I'm still going to watch Can't Stop The Music on Channel 9 tonight though the year has to start with a bit of camptastic nonsense.
My Grandmother used to say an old Irish blessing every New Years Eve. Funny I've not thought of it in the 7 years since she passed away. For some reason it popped into my head a little while ago. Maybe she sent it to me from wherever she and the rest of my family are partying tonight
Anyway, here it is and may your 2014 be all you dream it to be.
"May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold in you the palm of His hand."
